Reference component

Use this component to “borrow” content from other pages in the CMS (either in your site or from another site in the CMS to which you have permission).

When content is updated in the original location, it will also update on your page.

This component is very handy for items that change frequently, such as calendars and event lists. For example, if your site needs to display the same Calendar of significant dates as the one shown on the Ryerson main page, you can use the Reference component to connect to the calendar and have it display and update to match the original.

How to use

  1. In the sidekick click on "Reference"
  2. Drag "Reference" onto page
  3. Double click, or right-click to edit
  4. Using the page tree located on the left, find the name of the site, then find the page, then find the component that contains the information that you would like to reference
  5. Click OK
